South Calcutta Girls’ College - SCGC Kolkata - SCGC

South Calcutta Girls’ College is an institution steeped in history. Its foundation can be traced back to the efforts of some lawyers of the Calcutta High court of the early part of the 20th century, who were keen to promote higher education for women. A significant step was taken with the formation of the Beltala Girls’ Education Society sometime in the 1920’s with the objective of setting up a college in South Calcutta for girls of educated middle-income families. The society was chaired by the great freedom fighter Deshbandhu Chitta Ranjan Das, while Peary Mohan Chatterjee was appointed secretary. Till the 1930’s the Diocesan College on Lansdowne Road was only women’s college in south Calcutta. But the need for a new institution was keenly felt when it closed down in 1931. It was at the initiatives of the Beltala Girls’ Education society that South Calcutta Girls’ College was founded in July 1932. Till 1946, it functioned as a morning college within the premises of Beltala Girls’ School. The residential facility was shared by students of the School and College, and convenient bus arrangements were made for the day scholars. South Calcutta Girls’ College – the third oldest girls’ College in West Bengal – is a historical treasure-trove. Since its establishment in 1932, the College has lived up to its heritage of imparting humane education to its students and has contributed to social empowerment and upliftment of women. This College has an illuminating repertoire of students and teachers who have performed consistently not only in academics, but also in the sojourn of life.
